Smartmotion

Smartmotion MidCity

 

What it's made for:
The MidCity from New Zealand manufacturer Smartmotion is a mid-drive version of their classic eCity. It keeps the same entry-level practicality and price tier but moves the motor to the center for greater range, power, and efficiency. They then go on to provide a build kit that packs serious value with full-wrap fenders, a high-capacity rear rack, and integrated lights. Simply, the MidCity is the bike for working kiwis who want to dip a toe into the ebike waters and want all the benefits mid-drive motors can offer.

Why we love it:
We've loved Smartmotion's classic eCity for years, they've allowed more people to get onto ebikes and ride more, but we've always had some reservations about recommending a hub-driven bike. Well, reservations no more! The MidCity provides great value, a comfortable ride, and a peppy mid-drive motor that extends range and increases power.

Stop in for a test ride on the MidCity today!

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
